These are a rare chicken breed with small hair-like feathers. They make for an excellent quality show birds. The silkie chicken is a breed named for its unique fluffy plumage, which is said to feel like silk. The breed has several other unique qualities, such as dark blue flesh and bones, blue earlobes, and five toes on each foot. They are often exhibited in poultry shows, and come in several colors. Silkies are well known for their calm, friendly temperament. Among the most docile of poultry, silkies are considered an ideal pet. Hens are also exceptionally broody, and make good mothers. Though they are fair layers themselves, laying about three eggs a week, they are commonly used to hatch eggs from other breeds and bird species.
